First off, I'm coming from a non-theist viewpoint. I view all religions as merely a tradition and I don't follow them. I don't believe you can be "born into religion" and be tied down by it, unless you're in a third world sh*thole, and risk of defying it is getting stoned by a mob. So, if you're a Muslim and you see the absolute atrocity, embarrassment and mayhem caused by your fellow religious followers, regardless how retarded and misguided they are, you should have a responsibility to distance yourself from that ideology or at very least it's symbols(burkahs, beards, rituals) or risk being viewed as one of them. It is not the same thing as having a people of your race or demographic committing atrocities and you being responsible for it- you are what you are and you cannot change that. However, following a cultural/societal belief that is your free choice and has brought more suffering than quantitative good, regardless if someone hijacked it, it is still your duty to say that you can no longer follow it or stand up and actively fight back against it. And I just don't see Muslims fighting back in any significant and forceful way. I mean, every single week there is a terrible Muslim terrorist attack, when a Muslim American goes to work or school or public place wearing that beard or head scarf do they not feel like they're being associated with those monsters who caused it? I know I would be because I'm wearing affiliated symbols of that religion. Just my $0.02. I mean, if I see someone wearing that and walking my way, I'm not standing in the direct vicinity of them without some concrete wall or solid metal objects in the line of view. And it does not make me a bigot. Also, I don't think I've seen the ninja scarfs where I live in U.S. so this photo is probably from England.
